THURSDAY, MAY 11th

A great football match yesterday against the 1st Cameronians—rather a professional team. A good fast game ended in two goals all. The ‘Downs’ had some casualties last night—22 I hear. Some seven more of Ricardo’s wounded have died. A dull close day. The country is looking lovely, and the blossom in the orchard is lovely. H_____ [Hamel] is a very pretty place, with the river and the woods, and the undulating ground, not withstanding its ruined look. Letters just in. Alas! No compulsion of Ireland.
